“Alabama, Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and West Virginia all have adult obesity rates of at least 35 percent”

By empirical observation Chicago must be about 50%.

CT is full of ugly women. I’m afraid my son’s will think they are the norm.

When discussing this same thing with my doctor, I pointed out that Arnold Schwarzenegger, in the year he won his 5th mr Olympia, would have been ‘morbidly obese’ by those charts at 6’2 and 243. O’m 6’ and 202 with 17 percent body fat, but ‘need to lose weight’ ?!?!?

The large number of Asians in CA must really bring the total number down.

I wouldn't suggest following pulling a Bloomberg, but there is a compelling state interest in curbing rampant obesity. Our national defense readiness is at stake -- something like 85% of male highschool seniors are unfit for military service, which is one of the reasons the services have missed their recruiting goals for the past multiple quarters...Also one reason that they're recruiting more girls to fill out the numbers which even further damages deployment readiness and morale. Aside from military readiness rampant obesity does put a strain on the medical system and other infrastructure, not to mention damages our national image and pride.

Schools ought to be required to institute sports and physical activity programs based on military fitness guidelines. Letting your 7 year balloon up to 180 pounds should constitute neglect. Society should voluntarily institutionalize fat-shaming.

Why do I see only 4 states colored in deep red, the states at or above 35%?

I’m 6’3 and 215 lbs of muscle. I carry 11% body fat and I am considered “overweight” by the BMI index.

Not a one of these 30% or more could qualify for health insurance before Obozzocare unless they were on a group policy from their employer. Sadly, I have seen men I served with in the bush back in 68-69 who are 300 plus now! Last time I used the VA some 3 plus years ago, I saw several younger Vets in the ER who were closer to 400 lbs.

Just a reminder to everybody that my next Weigh-In will be at 10 AM on September 28 sat the Sav A Lot Nutrition Center in Margate, FL. My last weigh-in was on August 17 in which I lost 31 pounds. I think everybody will be quite surprised with the next results. My goal is to lose 100 lbs total so I can go on the Steve Kane Radio Show (longest running radio show in Florida history) cruise to the Caribbean next year.

My wife wouldn't let me go on the cruise this year because she thought all that shipboard food would kill me. Therefore she demanded that I lose 100 pounds in order to go on the next cruise.

You can see the August 17 weigh-in recorded by Steve Kane Show co-host Brian Craig featured in this DOCUMENTARY about the Sav A Lot Nutrition center. When I hit the 100 lb weight loss I will have an important message for all the peoples of the world (No, not a warning to stay about from the moon Europa).

Oh, and you can see my secret on easily losing all this weight in the documentary. BTW, the Sept. 28 weigh will be live-casted on YouTube by Brian Craig.

I am guilty of the first and completely innocent of the second.

No ink, not now, not ever.

So quit allowing ETB card holders to buy junk food. We see carts full of chips etc in line at Wallyworld and paid for with our money.
